In 2010, I began using a presentation style that combines my nature photography with my presentations. This serves several purposes. First, it means that I no longer have to look for and track permissions and licensing of online materials. Second, I’ve found that audiences pay a lot more attention to the information that I am conveying instead of getting distracted reading slides and handouts. Lastly, it makes it easier to connect with the audience as a person, as I am sharing more than just my professional knowledge with others.

This presentation focuses on scams and how senior citizens are specifically being targeted. It was given to individuals in charge of residence homes with the intent of educating them and putting them in a position of being better able to protect their residents. The presentation has limited introductory material and, in the interest of time, goes quickly to an overview of specific attacks. The second portion of the presentation focuses on what should and should not be done when faced with these attacks. Finally, I end on specific steps that a person in charge of resident services can take to help protect their residents.

The presentation itself is available as 2011-SeniorScams. To view it properly, you will need Open Office or Libre Office. It can be opened in the latest version of PowerPoint, but animations and layout may be less than ideal.

My presentations are increasingly visual, so for a more complete view of the information conveyed, please see the “notes” section.
